Hi,

If you already have your bookmarks set up the way you want on your old computer, you can copy them over to your new computer:

1. On your old computer: Export Firefox bookmarks to an HTML file to back up or transfer bookmarks 2. Copy that file to your new computer, and then follow these directions: Import Bookmarks from an HTML file

If you don't want to do that, you can create bookmark folders in the library (bookmarks menu > "show all bookmarks"). In that window, click on the gear icon in the upper-left, choose "new folder", and enter the name of your folder. Find each bookmark you want to place in the folder, and drag it onto the folder name in the sidebar. Once you've done that, drag the folder itself into the "bookmarks toolbar" section to make it show up in your toolbar.

On a new installation of Firefox, it's possible that the bookmarks toolbar won't be visible. If that's the case, right-click anywhere on the toolbar (above where the bookmarks toolbar would normally be), and select the "bookmarks toolbar" option.

Hope that helps!
